The UAE’s global food packaging manufacturer acquires a Comexi F2 MB flexographic printing press and a Comexi SL2 Evolution laminator

Hotpack Global, UAE’s global food packaging company, expanded its market share in the flexible packaging sector by acquiring a Comexi F2 MB flexographic printing press, and a Comexi SL2 Evolution laminator with Synaptic Closed Loop. Deemed to be a number one in the rigid packaging and flexible packaging sectors of the region, Hotpack will further strengthen its commitment with the advanced technological solutions from Comexi, a specialist in solutions for the flexible packaging printing and converting industry.

"This is a very important operation for both parties", explains Comexi's Area Manager in this region, Oriol Rabert, who highlights that the Comexi F2 MB acquired by Hotpack Global "has the latest technology, including Comexi Cloud, the best longitudinal register on the market (only 25 microns), and a tension control of only 20N for stretch films such as PE, which is increasingly used due to its recyclability". In reference to the SL2 Evolution laminator, this machine incorporates the GScan Synaptic Closed Loop sensor that minimises the amount of adhesive used, reduces machine downtime to almost zero, and eliminates quality issues. "Ultimately, cost is reduced, and productivity is increased, as every reel is accepted. This translates into satisfied customers," professes Rabert. Furthermore, the SL2 Evolution features strip lamination for the creation of windows that allow the encased product to be seen.

The agreement, the first between the two companies, was signed between Mr. Manel Xifra, President of Comexi, and Mr. Abdul Jebbar, Group Managing Director of Hotpack Global. It was conceived at the ArabPlast trade fair, which was held last November in Dubai (United Arab Emirates).

Founded in 1995, Hotpack Global offers complete range of sustainable food packaging solutions to the foodservice and hospitality industries following the highest quality standards. The group has branches all over the Middle East, UK, USA, Australia, and many regions of Africa, and exports spanning over 100 countries. Backed with their 27 years of experience and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, Hotpack products are widely recognized all over the world for their quality standards, and possess all major quality accreditations, that of ISO, BRCGS, USFDA, Sedex, FSC, PEFC, and ESMA certifications. Hotpack’s food packaging solutions include environmentally friendly kraft boxes, trays, paper bags, paper cups, takeaway containers, aluminum foil, and flexible packaging products, PET recyclable bakery containers, salad bowls, juice cups, facial tissues, napkins, kitchen rolls, and toilet rolls. Company’s portfolio includes over 3500 products.

The Comexi F2 MB machine is the perfect machine for the combination of short and medium runs, and processing a full range of flexible packaging applications. The F2 MB features every ergonomic solution of the F2 family. It incorporates GeniusTech solutions to assist printers in conquering the primary challenges they currently encounter, which include a lack of skilled operators, job length reduction, and an increased number of job changes, among others. High importance has been given to solutions that focus on providing expeditious job changeover, which include: the GeniusFlow for rapid cleaning, automatic set up solutions GeniusSet and GeniusReg to shorten time and minimize waste; or GeniusData to shorten the start-up of a new job because the parameters of an existing job can be stored and reused.

The new SL2 Evolution is a compact solventless laminator consciously designed with automation, reliability, and productivity. Incredible and futuristic design, completely renovated interface, and inclusive top-level options, make this machine the leading performance option for solventless lamination. Among these options, the Closed Loop system is of special mention; it automatically adjusts and maintains the adhesive grammage without solvents throughout the production process.
